Lions Claim Another Reserves Flag

Harvey Brunswick Leshenault have continued their dominance of the Reserves Competition, claiming their third successive flag, and fourth in five years, after defeating Eaton Boomers in a dour Grand Final.

The Lions would effectively set up their win in the first quarter, kicking four goals to one, there-after, both teams kicked three goals apiece.

The aggregate score of 78 points is the lowest combined total in a Grand Final for at least the last 20 years, while the winning score of 6.11.47 is the second lowest winning score in the same time frame.

Cameron Thompson would win the Don Punch Medal, as best player on the ground, kicking three goals to go with it.   Jayme Osiejak was clearly Eaton Boomers best player, also kicking three goals.

The game was played in fine conditions, albeit a bit windy, with not one score at the Southern end of Hands Oval in the second half.`1.
